look at what i made:

I liken my blog to one of those refrigerator magnets that preschool children use to display their latest creations, they usually say "look at what I made." 

I rummaged through the fabric cabinets and pulled out this lovely plaid.  I've been itching to create an apron since I started sewing.  I love a high waisted apron, because I tend to splash things on my stomach when I cook.  And because high waisted aprons are flattering.  

I went to last.fm and chose to play Sufjan Stevens radio.  Have I told you about last.fm?  Type in your favorite artist and you can listen to their songs or a custom radio station with music similar to the artist.  It's sometimes hit or miss, but today was nice.  I listened to creativity inspiring music, such as Sufjan, Iron and Wine, Andrew Bird, The Innocence Mission, Beirut, Rufus Wainwright, etc.  Now that I think about it, it was quite a bit of the music my beloved cousin Liz enjoys.  {I miss you dear cousin!}  

Music and crafts, I'm a happy gal.

I made a high waisted A-line apron.  I think the colors are very Valentine's week appropriate.  It has a generous fuchsia waistband with very long ties so that it ties in the front.  Do you like it? 
   

Happy Tuesday.

I miss you too, dear cousin. I can't wait until we can hang out again and trade notes on Balkan pop, indie darlings, etc. I love the apron you made! (and coffee cozy) Looks like the sewing bug has taken down another victim in the family lol.

P.S.- did you know that your girl Zoe Deschanel is engaged to Ben Gibbard?
